Viper Grenade Launcher[1]

The Viper Grenade Launcher is a squad support weapon, designed to supplement a blaster rifle or carbine.[2]


The Viper Grenade Launcher is a underslung attachment that can be mounted on a rifle or carbine. This weapon considered to be the best underslung grenade launcher available, and was on the market at least after the Battle of Yavin. The Alliance to Restore the Republic makes use of this weapon. Constructed with a Tybrene Launcher and vibro balancing systems, this weapon is incredibly precise at ranges below its maximum rated range. The firing stud is found on the right side of the weapon.
